Exclamation Looking to buy a car with a high resale value

Hi guys my buddy and I are trying to make some money and get involved in cars, so we want to buy a car with some stuff that needs fixing(not engine work...yet) that we can detail and clean up and then sell it to make more money, and go from there. So I was wondering how I could make the most money doing this and what cars we would be best off buying to fix and sell and still make money.

Hondas.

However, if you have experience working on certain cars (1980s Fords for example) the time saved by sticking to what you know can make up for the smaller potential returns. This is because problem areas are common across similar vehicles of similar vintages. This similarity can be incredibly helpful when looking to quickly repair and flip the vehicles. Lots of OBD1 Fords have idle and EGR problems which can be easily fixed by someone with experience.

Good luck.
